The Yorùbá Summit Group is deeply saddened that we have lost our pioneer Publicity Secretary, Comrade Yinka Odumakin.
For the period leading from 2017 to 2019, Comrade Yinka Odumakin was our Indefatigable spokesman.
Undoubtedly, Comrade Yínka Odumakin, was a most Forthright, a most Steadfast, as he also was as diligent in serving the Yorùbá interest.
He the very best there was, in the whatever position, assigned to him ń, just as he served The Yorùbá Summit Group, The Umbrella body for all Yorùbá Groups.
He was a warrior, a True Èṣọ́ of the Yorùbá Nation.
He feared no one; He stood for all, for truth, for justice and Equality.
The Yorùbá Nation and indeed the Nigerian state, have both lost a Distinguished personality, yet in his over 25 years in the public glare, Comrade Yínka Odumakin never once held a public office, elected or non-elected!
To many of this generation Comrade Yinka Odumakin stood tall as an example of an Elusive, Fearless, Selfless Leader who was about Service-to-others and not about service-to-sekf, the commonplace the demagoguery of political opportunists….
To us of The South West zone, You defined Dignity, the philosophy of living, stating clearly, we are of The ọmọlúwàbí Ethos never having to accept the doctrine of the sense of entitlement that some people are wont to through about, thd very albatross dogging this country.
The legacies left behind by Comrade Yínka Odumakin will continue to live long and far into the consciousness of our people, of that, we have no doubts. These legacies shall surely endure, not washed away, not wished away.
Be rest assured Comrade, that those of us that you have left behind will continue to pick up the gauntlet, receive and hand over the baton, fly the flag and continue the great fight — Victory is nigh and your spirit to guide us there.
Good Night Dear Comrade.
Mogaji Gboyega Adejumo.
Publicity Secretary, Yorùbá Summit Group.
